using the Park Place Webcam

So far I've recognized 3 of 4 TKL members on Monday. 

I also recognized Eliot and Cath Shook today as they walked by carrying their kites but didn't grab a pic.

 Watching the big SLK's down the beach is relaxing and closest thing I have to being there. Seeing someone you know or recognize is kinda cool as well.

Anyone else recognize friends, faces and fellow kiters in the webcam??

(It doesn't count if you just recognize the kites. That's too easy)

Caught us doing dogstake team, is that all you could see? Looks like we're way off frame?

Aye. that was about it. They move the camera side to side throughout the day so you get what you get. You and team were at the edge of it all.  I never saw more than 2 kites at the time and it was mostly yours.Scott would follow but you'd be off frame before any thing else would be seen. I sent you a text just to say "I see you" but you were involved obviously.

Looking forward to some Symphony 2.2.4 footage. Hopefully I will see you on Saturday. Hoping to make a day trip.

I clicked on the webcam link just out of curiosity expecting to see black since it's ~10:30pm eastern time. Guess what? There are a couple people flying right now!

Unfortunately, I found myself almost yelling at the screen later as they moved the camera away from the sport kite fields to focus on the Corvette parade.  Shows what's interesting to me isn't the same as others.. They also spent a lot of time earlier in the week focused on the big SLK field. Only on Saturday did they focus out front long enough to see a few routines..

While I am glad for OC that the corvetts brought out a lot of people for a low season boost, I can't say that I enjoyed seeing their parade.  Noisy, Smelly, Loud and too long.  I should admit that the challenging weather on Friday made Saturday seem even more precious, and the interruption of the parade more annoying. 

 

Thanks to JB for doing Buggy Bunnny, that was cool to see a routine that I had watched on videos....it is my favorite vid to show others when I am trying to get them to understand that my kite flying is cool not crazy.  Watching TKL was soo cool.  Always more skills to aim for.
